Having written my last post about Reeds Rains Property Management, I re-read it a few times and received a few comments, making me decide to go ahead and register a complaint.

Reeds Rains – The Management Fiasco

Contracting Reeds Rains Property Management to manage my rental property was a mistake. Not only did I end up dealing with my own tenants, but I also had to chase Reeds Rains Property Management for the rent that the tenants had paid them.
